If one of your childhood’s themes was Commodore 64, if you’ve ever heard of Flash Gordon or Last Ninja, if you’re interested in hearing their soundtracks again… then you’re in luck! A Kickstarter campaign of an 8-bit symphonic album has been launched.
The original ‘chiptune music’ has come back from the dead.
The idea is this: get a Hollywood orchestra in a recording room, provide them with transcriptions of the famous 8-bit soundtracks, and hit the record button! As for transcriptions, this part is already done – there has already been a live concert with this music!
At the time of writing this news, there has already been gathered $40 000 out of $80 000 goal. Backers of 8-Bit Symphony Pro will receive physical or digital copies of the album, and the most generous among them will also have a chance to attend the recording sessions or even get licenses to organize concerts with the music.
It seems like the original ‘chiptune music’ has come back from the dead. Would anyone be surprised? Potential backers: here‘s how the end result will sound.
